Auto Immune Disorders
Bring your immune system back into balance by addressing the underlying causes!
Introduction to Metabolic Testing, Functional Nutrition & Neurology for Auto-immune Conditions
If you are suffering with an autoimmune condition, then quite simply, parts of your immune system aren’t working properly (hypo-function vs. hyper-function)
Whether you suffer with:
- Hashimotos Thyroiditis
- Graves Thyroiditis
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- MS, Parkinsons, Alzheimer’s
- Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease
- Pernicious Anemia
- Sjogrens Syndrome
- Hepatitis AI, Scleroderma
- Guillian-Barre Syndrome
- Addisons Disease
- Meniere’s Disease
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Raynaud Phenomenon
- Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
And many more.
You should know: Auto-immune = Auto-immune = Auto-immune
The only difference is which tissue is attacked, but the mechanisms is the same
Meaning, at the heart of matter, your immune system is out of balance.
At Boca Health Care Center, our Autoimmune Recovery Program rests on the fundamental philosophy that there is a big difference between auto-immune reaction and auto-immune disease.
Meaning, once you develop antibodies to your own tissues, and your body is attacking itself, those antibodies will always be present.
This is true, and there is no cure.
However, think of your autoimmunity like a dimmer switch to a light bulb with no on and off button. While you can never turn the autoimmunity off for good, you certainly can lower the intensity.
There are many natural protocols to greatly improve your life and preserve your body.
Hence, there is a big difference to autoimmune reaction and autoimmune disease.
With that being said, conventional healthcare has very little to offer besides steroids, anti-inflammatory medications, and/or immunosuppressants.
When traditional medicine takes this approach to auto-immune conditions, they fail to address the chief causes of the immune breakdown in your body.
At Boca Health Care Center, we understand that 2 main triggers causes your immune system to attack itself.
- Immune Dysregulation
- An Active Antigen
When talking about immune dysregulation, all of the following need to be considered and tested for:
- Chronic inflammation from poor diet (EFAs- essential fatty acids)
- Bad blood sugar
- Bad adrenal glands
- Hormone imbalances
- Neurological imbalances
- Low Vitamin D
When talking about having an active antigen the following need to be considered:
- Chronic infection (bacterial, viral, mold)
- Infection in gut
- Food sensitivity
- Environmental toxins
- Leaky Gut Syndrome
At Boca Health Care Center, we realize that no two cases of autoimmunity are alike. That is why we test to determine the true cause or causes of your autoimmunity, and then put together an autoimmune recovery strategy to address these causes, remove these triggers, and ultimately, get back your health.
This is all accomplished with taking an integrative approach to your health, ordering the proper tests, addressing the true causes, and designing a tailored made recovery program.
So, if you have been chronically sick & have gone to multiple doctors and they have given you no answers – you may be auto-immune!
It may be time try functional medicine as an approach to preserving your body, lowering the intensity of your autoimmunity, and minimize your autoimmune reactivity.
